Since relocating to its town centre location; staff and learners at the Aberdare campus of Coleg y Cymoedd have been proactive in forging links with businesses and organisations.
The most recent example of partnership working is the Creative Media Exhibition which is currently on display in the Mezzanine Gallery at the Aberdare Museum.
The wide range of learners’ work includes stunning photography, thought provoking art work and exciting media projects; all produced during the past academic year.
The Level 1 and 2 Full Time Creative Media learners, based at the Aberdare campus study a range of disciplines including Art, Media, Design, Music, Photography and various Craft Skills. This helps the learners to explore Creative Arts and Media to help them progress and specialise in a Creative Industries pathway of their choice.
Donna Price, one of the Creative Tutors statedâ€ The learners have been really excited to display their work at the museum, they have worked really hard to produce such a professional exhibition. Â The Creative Industries of South Wales are looking for strong creative thinkers and our courses could be the start of an exciting career for themâ€.
Roisin McGarvey, Level 1 Creative learner added â€œI felt really proud seeing my work at the museum, because I feel that Iâ€™ve worked really hard and Iâ€™ve never seen my work displayed before. It was also really nice to see everyone elseâ€™s hard work on displayâ€.
To view the exhibition visit Aberdare Museum, Depot Road, Aberdare, CF44 8DL from 7 June â€“ 4 July
